In this episode, we’re exploring some of the research that’s happening in the Burgess Foundation archive. The Burgess Foundation's Graham Foster talks to PhD student Milena Schwab-Graham about her work on the Burgess audio collection.
Milena's work is part of a collaboration between the Burgess Foundation and the White Rose College of the Arts and Humanities (WRoCAH), an AHRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, and York. All of WRoCAH’s PhD students spend a month outside of their regular academic setting to conduct a project of direct benefit to an outside organisation.
Milena is a WRoCAH PhD student at the University of Leeds, where she is researching the work of the writers George Eliot, May Sinclair and Sylvia Townsend Warner. She was awarded both her undergraduate degree and her Masters from the University of Liverpool, and has taught British Literature and Culture at the University of Duisburg-Essen in Germany. In 2014, she was awarded the George Eliot Fellowship Essay Prize for her article on Daniel Deronda and Ludwig Feuerbach.
